I made these socks for the daughter of the co-worker I gave these socks to. I finished the socks on Friday.

The socks were made of fingering weight superwash Merino wool using 48 stitches with the pattern consisting of 12 stitches. The pattern can be modified for larger sizes by simply adding an extra stitch to the moss pattern and an extra stitch to the stockinette pattern.

(The second photo links to a larger version of the picture which shows the spiral to marginally better effect.)

You're welcome. I like simple textures so that's the kind of socks I make.

BIG BAD PICTURE plus no posting:
I’m in the process of doing some massive ring maintenance for the FiberArts Bloggers ring and I am contacting you because there’s a problem you may have noticed with your code. I will go ahead and e-mail you the basic ring code now, but if you don’t get it please let me know.
Also, your blog is in the queue at the moment, as it's been more than a month since you've posted. That's nothing personal, and as soon as you've put up another post--even a quick one just to let us know you're there--I'll be happy to move you back to the ring. :)
Once you have your code fixed up, and/or have posted, if you want to send me a note I’d appreciate it, so I can check it out/move you back into the ring. Thanks!
